About Miyuki Baker

Miyuki is a resident of the place where circles overlap. As a queer, nomadic, multi-racial/lingual female mixed-media artist activist and healer, she uses common or discarded objects, personal anecdotes, public spaces and performance to make accessible art that brings non-mainstream identities and ideas into maximum visibility. After graduating from Swarthmore College in 2012, she traveled for 14 months as a Watson Fellow to fifteen countries documenting the intersections of art and activism in queer/trans communities in blog posts and self-published magazines while making performance art. The eight magazines Miyuki created on this trip (queerscribe.com) and their strong media following exemplify her illustration/graphic design, storytelling and people skills. Her work has been featured in several magazines such as Hyphen, Broken Pencil and Knik, blogs and radio shows, well-known for their interactive and eye-catching mixed media approach to activism that utilizes both online media and on-site performance and workshops. This fall she will begin the PhD program at UC Berkeley in Performance Studies. You can follow her travels at heymiyuki.wordpress.com and email her at heymiyuki@gmail.com

  1. Oh, that city-planning activity is really interesting. My mind immediately went to how I could adapt for that an ESL class. Now I wish I had time left in the semester to try more lessons that incorporate social justice into education! Anyway, glad to hear you had a great time at the conference!

    • Speaking like a true teacher. I wish I could have observed one of your English classes.

      But yeah, it’s super interesting stuff! I highly recommend the conference. You should try to make it out there next year! If I’m in the country I’m hoping to go again 🙂
